Meet the Dentist

Krithika Chellappa, DDS

         Hi! My name is Krithika and I grew up in sunny southern California, where I received my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at University of California, Irvine. I then received my dental degree from University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry (UOP) in San Francisco, California in 2002. I moved to the beautiful evergreen state of Washington in 2004 after some convincing from my husband, who was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Together, we enjoy the great outdoors, whether it be hiking, camping, picking huckleberries, skiing or simply sitting back and taking it all in. We have two daughters, born in 2008 and 2009, and spend as much time as possible with friends and family. Family has always played a big role in my life, and I hope to extend that same level of support and comfort to my patients.

       Art and science have both been my passion, and dentistry has given me an outlet to put those pieces together. I came into this family dentistry practice in April 2006 and since then have had the privilege of developing many long-term relationships with my patients. I understand the individual needs of each patient, and I am committed to helping you achieve your optimal dental health. I will do my best to make sure you receive the most gentle and comfortable care possible. My team is also committed to the same level of comfort and care, and together we hope to exceed your expectations.
